ADA 45-F - eheim 2211 or 2213?


My ada tank is 4.6 gallons with dimensions 18x9.5x6.

I have both 2211 and 2213 laying around, which one should I use?

Hey Soup12, I used the 2211 and had plenty of flow. Occasionally I'd have to turn it down a bit because it was too much. I'd say go with the 2211.

I have a 2213 on mine, I also have it running at about 50% because it is WAY too strong, even with a poppy style pipe.

Yep. Definitely 2211. I use one with a spray bar and still turn the flow down a bit.

hmm, if you're going to do ada piping maybe try the spin? it's supposed to reduce the flow a lot

2211 would be my choice. I tried using an Ecco 2234 on a 6 gallon and it was barely suitable (too much flow) with dimensions better for higher flow that a 45f. That was throttled down as much as possible. I think a 2213 would be too much but it may work throttled down. I don't own either of the filters or the tank, just my thoughts.
